Shop by Health Goal: Sugar Metabolism System

You don't have to be diabetic to have a sugar problem. If you're overweight, there's a good chance that you also have high blood sugar. Eating too many heavy, sweet, oily foods... ice-cold drinks... a lack of exercise... long-term stress... family history -- these same factors are linked to both weight gain and sugar intolerance. Processed, easily digested carbohydrates and sweets can disrupt normal fat metabolism, which can dramatically raise your blood sugar levels. But at a deeper level, sugar intolerance is due to a cellular imbalance. When the liver and pancreas get bogged down with sugar metabolism, the digestion, assimilation and metabolism of nutrients is hampered. These three processes -- digestion, assimilation and metabolism -- affect all areas of life. That's how the body builds cells. Poor metabolism results in unhealthy cells. And when the cells don't work right, your metabolism gets even more out of balance. It's a vicious cycle that can spiral out of control.

  • Well-cooked, leafy green vegetables are especially recommended.
  • Avoid heavy foods such as meats, cheeses and other dairy products that are hard to digest.
  • Reduce sweet, sour and salty foods.
  • The herbal seasoning, Organic Stimulating Spice Mix helps strengthen sugar metabolism. You can cook with it or sprinkle it on your meals.
  • Drink lots of plain warm water, which helps flush toxins that can inhibit valuable liver and pancreas functions.
  • Avoid fasting or skipping meals which stresses the body and decreases the flow of valuable nutrients.
  • Take plenty of rest. Go to sleep before 10 p.m., when your body begins to remove impurities.
  • Avoid exposure to cold or damp weather.
  • Get adequate exercise for your age and level of health.
